Lila is consumed with love for her two older brothers, Aaron and Jack, and is blind to the simmering tension between them.

A decade later, Lila still searches for Aaron, who disappeared that night, and Suzanne, whose mystique still exerts a hold on Lila's memory. For Lila to move past her family's tragedy, she must piece together that fateful weekend-- and recover the things lost down by the water before she can at last let them go
